Dahlonega Literary Festival

The Dahlonega Literary Festival is an annual celebration of books. The next festival will take place March 8-9, 2014. Situated in Historic Downtown Dahlonega,  the festival continues to grow and become more and more entertaining as the years go on. We promise that it will delight anyone who is a lover of books and reading.  All festival events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.

Each year the festival presents a slate of invited authors representing a variety of genres sharing their ideas and experiences in various programs. In addition, a number of regional authors (ranging from local to other areas of the Southeast) have the opportunity to purchase a table to both interact with festival attendees and sell their books.

We are a festival of books, not just a festival with books
